Police and Community Engagement

Police Advisory Board

The Police Advisory Board serves as a liaison between the Raleigh community and City Council. The board will help the Raleigh Police Department build trust and relationships.



Police Advisory Board

The Raleigh Police Advisory Board members will serve a two-year term with a maximum of three terms. The terms must be staggered, and citizens can serve on no more than two boards or commissions at one time. The Board will be staffed from the Office of Equity and Inclusion. The board will have no relationship to the Human Relations Commission.

The board's responsibilities include:

  • Reviewing existing Raleigh Police Department procedures. Contributing to fair policy development.
  • Engaging community members through educational outreach on Raleigh Police Department directives.

The board will not conduct investigations, hear testimony, or contribute to disciplinary action. The board will not respond to citizen complaints. The board will not collect data.  Any complaints received by the city will be shared with this board to drive their work prioritization.
